August 30, 2010: What I Am Reading This Week

“…Safely detached from the spiritual lepers outside, we can glory in Christian preschool through graduate school, Christian music, Christian romance novels, Christian leadership books, Christian T-shirts, Christian bumper stickers, Christian breath mints, and even Christian Halloween candy. Thank God for those Christian Yellow Pages. The only thing we will not have is the personal influence of the gospel in the lives of those who do not know Christ. It’s difficult to make disciples of people we won’t even talk to. In a perverse twist of our Lord’s expectation, many Christians find themselves of the world by means of some kind of pseudo-sacred imitation, but not in it!” (Italics mine)
